Hi everyone
I got my tickets through this morning for SK 983 to NRT (im very excited!!) Smile/happy/getting dizzy, are all the SAS A340s equipped with PTV's?, and how does the comfort flying coach in a A343 compare to a 744?. I've flown with BA744,AC,AF,UA lets just say I wasn't impressed with AC.

Any help appreciated  Smokin cool .

All of them have PTV's.

I've heard the ride is quite comfortable, you may want to search the Trip Reports forum to find more information.

Hi Springbok,

Yes all seats in SAS A340's are equipped with PTV's. No worry about that. You'll also have two cameras (one looking down and one looking forward) during the whole trip. The best thing when the aircraft approach the runway before landing.  Smile
I had the pleasure to fly on one of the A340's last February. I aslo wrote a trip report about it.

There're also other trip reports about SAS new long-haul aircraft. Just do a search.

Hi man.

Yes, they'd have PTV's like every other airline ....... EVERY??? No , a german flag charrier named Lufthansa haven't got this little , useful things in their planes... : )

No, I was flying Kopenhagen - Tokyo Narita a month ago on their A 343 in Business cl. Its very comfortable. You can read more about my trip , in the trip_reports forum.

Was flying BKK-CPH in coatch an returning in Economy+, both the flights were very comfortable. Great food from CPH to BKK. Good seatcomfort and the fun of looking the landing on your own PTV. I had a cozy flight. And no limits of drinks. But okay some times it is easyer to go to the galley, and ask for somethink to drink and a sandwich if you fell hungry.

You could find nice interior pictures at: http://www.sasflightops.com
Browse to the A340 and then you will find them among a lot of other pictures of the nice bird.

Anyone know where to also find a seat map?

Best regards,

The crew I found very good and disiplined and motivated. The choice in food was limited but the quality high (not very spicy).

Seat Pitch & Sleeping comfort was not as much as other airlines.
Movies are not on demand like JAL. The screen was hard to get out of the seat. My feed touched the seat in front of me when in full recline.

All in all a good product.
